Not something we can benchmark reliably, way too many variables at work.

In general, the better your CPU, the lower your GPU involvement or relative speed improvement. Your OS does a good job with load balancing and optimization; I don't suggest tinkering, although there are those who will tell you otherwise.

How is this graphics card used? 13%, 46%, or 100%? Most Windows users would think it is barely running at 13% and suspect a bottleneck somewhere. It is actually used much more than 13%, I'm not sure what is the truth, but I' quite confident we can't really trust the windows usage graphs...

Any chance of a Linux verison of Vegas :-D

That's something I would love to see too. Being more than 6 years with Linux on a server, and about since 2 years on the desktop (actually a laptop) I switch multiple times between Windows and Linux a day, my dislike for Windows grows every day. The only thing that keeps me running Windows on my desktop is Vegas. Because I need it for my work, and so far did not find a tool which fits better in my "hand".

There was a thread here about Vegas losing people and why, not sure the exact title. In that thread I read valid opinions about that the core of Vegas should be completely rewritten. Regardless of that I agree with this or not, I'm not sure this will ever happen. But if it does, I highly hope Magix would do this in a real crossplatform way. There are examples of that this is possible, just think of the "famous" Davinci Resolve. It runs on Linux. Lightworks also runs on Linux. Blender, Natron are crossplatform too. Personally I would welcome a Linux (or crossplatform) version of "Vegas 20", even with a reduced feature set. I'm not sure this will happen though. Profit oriented firms -like Magix- usually think Linux is only for the geeks, and Linux users Won't pay for software for Linux. That may be true for the majority, but there are also firms who think crossplatform and build their application from the ground up to be crossplatform. I don't want to mention LWKS or DR again, so take other German firms as example, first Softmaker. They have the most powerful, most compatible office suite and it's totally crossplatform. Seemingly they can sell the Linux version too, since it's been there for years now, and it's developed too, now Office 2018 is in the shop. Yes, I bought it too, in fact both Win and Linux versions. After that there's Zedonet, they made the best printing solution, but I need only what they provide for Linux. So what I want to say, that "Linux people won't pay anything" is definitely false, and also there are the examples of being crossplatform is not a technical impossibility. So if we ever will have a Linux version depends really on intentions of Magix - I think. Their intentions also depend on our needs. So if only you and me ask for a Linux version, it won't happen. If many people ask for it - maybe.

Yes, I dont think it is a true representation. It much faster than just with the CPU. Many thanks.

in Vegas 14 , AMD APU Soc GPU ( R7 2 gig using System Memory ) goes to about 20 % , when viewing Task Manager ( windows 10 ) . that 20 % is strictly for Time Line , as Vegas 14 is CPU only for rendering . Vegas 14 shows something less then 10 % when rendering . Pretty much CPU only when rendering with Vegas 14 .

DaVinci Resolve can sustain at about 35 % with CPU loading at about 70 % .

While Hitfilm Pro is on the short side of the stick .

GPUz usually shows higher numbers than windows will... which means one of them is wrong.

In either case, not having 100% utilization doesn't mean that the GPU isn't being fully utilized, it can mean that the GPU is stuck waiting for data due to another bottleneck.
